Updating your contact information

It is your responsibility to keep your primary email address and mobile phone number up to date so that MCAT Self Prep can communicate with you electronically. You understand and agree that if MCAT Self Prep sends you a Communication but you do not receive it because your primary email address or mobile phone number on file is incorrect, out of date, blocked by your service provider, or you are otherwise unable to receive Communications, MCAT Self Prep will be deemed to have provided the Communication to you.

Please note that if you use a spam filter that blocks or re-routes emails from senders not listed in your email address book, you must add MCAT Self Prep to your email address book so that you will be able to receive the Communications MCAT Self Prep send to you.

You can update your primary email address, mobile phone number, or street address at any time by logging into the MCAT Self Prep’ website and modifying your profile. If your email address or mobile phone number becomes invalid such that Communications sent to you by MCAT Self Prep are returned, MCAT Self Prep may deem your Account to be inactive, and you will not be able to transact any activity using your Account until MCAT Self Prep receives a valid, working primary email address or mobile phone number from you.

Authorization to be Contacted by MCAT Self Prep/Withdrawal of Consent

You authorize MCAT Self Prep to call you for transactional or relationship purposes (that is, notices to facilitate the transaction or the relationship such as (1) suspected fraud or identity theft; (2) obtaining information necessary for MCAT Self Prep to service your Account; (3) collecting on your Account; (4) notifying you as to important issues regarding your Account) at any telephone/mobile phone number or email address you provide.  Such calls could be made using an automatic telephone dialing system or prerecorded voice.

MCAT Self Prep may also send you transactional or relationship messages by SMS text message at any mobile number you provide and you authorize MCAT Self Prep sending any SMS test messages through your communication service provider.  Such texts may be made using an automatic telephone dialing system.  MCAT Self Prep will not charge you a fee for sending SMS text messages, but your communication service provider may.  You agree to pay any fee(s) or charges(s) that you may incur for incoming and outgoing text messages from or to us or our assigns, successors, servicers or agents, without reimbursement from MCAT Self Prep or them.

You may withdraw your consent to receive SMS text messages by texting STOP to the message you receive.  At MCAT Self Prep’ option, MCAT Self Prep may treat your provision of an invalid mobile phone number, or the subsequent malfunction of a previously valid mobile phone number as a withdrawal of your consent to receive SMS text messages.  MCAT Self Prep will not impose any fee to process the withdrawal of your consent to receive SMS text messages.  Any withdrawal of your consent to receive SMS text messages will be effective only after MCAT Self Prep have a reasonable period of time to process your withdrawal.


You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold MCAT Self Prep harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, liability, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from your provision of a mobile phone number that is not your own or your violation of applicable federal, state or local law, regulation or ordinance.  Your obligations under this paragraph shall survive termination of the Agreement.  MCAT Self Prep will not be liable for losses or damages arising from any delay in delivery or disclosure of account information to third parties by your communication service provider. MCAT Self Prep may modify or terminate its text messaging services from time to time, for any reason, and without notice, including the right to terminate text messaging with or without notice, without liability to you, any other user or a third party.


How we Matched up the Khan Academy Passages with the eCourse Lessons

Each lesson of the eCourse contains links to 1 to 5 Khan Academy science passages for the purpose of providing you with non-AAMC material to practice your science passage reading skills on. By completing all the linked passages within every lesson, you will have finished all the freely available Khan Academy science passages.

To match up the Khan Academy Science Passages with the eCourse lessons, we carefully examined the passage and question content of each one. Then we decided which lesson of the eCourse best correlated with that content. You may notice that some passages don’t match up perfectly with the current lesson. If they don’t match up with the current lesson, they should match up with one of the previous lessons in the module. We did this carefully so that you could practice your science passage reading skills on passages that contain the content you’ve already learned.

Why we don’t recommend non-AAMC CARS practice questions

We recommend practicing CARS by reading non-AAMC CARS passages but not doing the associated practice problems. The reason we don’t recommend doing the practice problems is because the MCAT is written by the AAMC. They have a very unique style in which they write CARS practice questions that third-party companies (try as they might) are unable to replicate. When students spend time on non-AAMC CARS practice problems, they get familiar with the wrong style of questioning, leading them to overthink and incorrectly respond to the questions written by the AAMC. Thus, it is in your best interest to solely practice on AAMC CARS practice questions.

That said, we highly recommend practicing your reading skills on non-AAMC CARS passages. In our Ultimate CARS Strategy Course, we provide you with 1,000 free CARS passages and 100+ homework assignments, giving you ample material to practice on. Reading countless passages while practicing the proper reading habits and strategies will prepare you well to conquer the CARS section as it was written by the AAMC.

Which books do the lessons match up with?

The books we use in each lesson are linked below. We plan to stick with these older editions of the books since very little has changed and the older editions are much more affordable:

First Edition of the Kaplan 7-book Series
First Edition of the Princeton 7-book Series

Do the chapters match up perfectly?

The Kaplan Books, Princeton Books, and Khan Academy Videos were all produced by different authors. For this reason, there are some chapters in the Kaplan Book or Princeton Book that are not even found in the Khan Academy Videos and vice versa. For instance, the Kaplan and Princeton Books have chapters that cover certain experimental procedures that the Khan Academy Videos do not cover.

Our goal in matching up the books with the videos was to correlate the content as best as possible while also covering ALL the content from every resource. For this reason, when nothing in the Kaplan Books matched up with one of the video playlists, instead of leaving the reading assignment for Kaplan blank, we inserted material that did not fit in anywhere else (i.e. one of those chapters on an experimental procedure that was not covered by Khan Academy). So, when the assignment doesn’t appear to match up right, please know that this was intentional.

*If you follow the reading assignments outlined, you will finish the entire Kaplan 7-book series and/or Princeton 7-book series by the time you finish all 10 content modules.

Do the sections match up perfectly?

If the sections assigned in our eCourse do not match up with the sections contained in your content review book, you may have a different edition. The sections should still match up the large majority of the time, but in the rare instance that they don’t, I’d recommend simply reading sections that do match up and saving the ones that do not for a future lesson.
